“The Edo Tokyo museum” in Ryogoku, Tokyo opened in 1993. It was built for the purpose of preservation and to hand down the old good tradition, the history and the culture of Edo and Tokyo that was being lost.
An area is divided into two zone, “Edo zone” and “Tokyo zone”. A living, the history and the culture of the people who lived in each “Edo” “Tokyo” time is displayed almost overflowing.
Such a hall starts with full scale Nihonbashi! Other than approximately 2,000 points of history documents, there are a diorama and a full-scale restoration more than a general museum. Anyway, the diorama is already a work of art.
The playhouse of the Nakamura seat of the Edo period which was overwhelming visitors to the museum in the size even if seen from Nihonbashi Bridge of the sixth floor. Among them, Kabuki which is the stars of Edo culture is introduced with various models, and it is very popular also for foreign tourists.
You do not get tired even if you see it all the time! Based on a document and information that slightly remain, the cityscape and the people are made minutely. This is the site of must-see.
It seems to be able to enjoy more than expected like the space that you can take a picture of is prepared for, and the show is carried out on the stage, apart from the exhibits. To compare the difference from modern Tokyo seems really interesting.
